Ru Wen, was separated from her parents at the age of five. 40 years later she’s still unable to connect the fragmented memories of her childhood. To her, survival meant burying her own curiosity to know why she had been abandoned by her birth family, a curiosity that grew into a silent longing over time. Masking her pain worked for most of her life, until her youngest daughter Tiffany started asking questions.

Armed with a pocket translator and a couple of Chinese names scribbled on a napkin, filmmaker Tiffany Hsiung as she travels to her mother’s to Taipei searching for answers. What she discovers there begins to reverberate across her relationships with the women who have come before her.

SING ME A LULLABY unravels the complex tensions between love and sacrifice. Told through the intertwined journeys of daughters and their mothers, this is a story about recovering familial history, healing inherited pain, and understanding that love comes in many forms.
